When your child joins Werneth Primary School, they will have their own class teacher and additional teachers and support staff will work alongside them to help any children whose first language is not English, or those who may have special educational needs.

Children are usually organised according to their age, however, in certain circumstances a child may be placed in a different year group, but only after discussion and agreement with parents.

All classes are mixed ability and teachers use various groupings to cater for the needs and abilities of all the children.
